Create and merchandise categories quickly and easily with Visual Merchandiser for Magento. Drag-and-drop products into position, or set up 'Smart Categories' based upon attributes. Saves you hours merchandising your Magento store.
New for version 2.2.7: Categories can now have smart rules AND be controlled by drag-and-drop. Automatic category sorting. Compatibility with layered navigation extensions.
Discover the ease at which you can merchandise your Magento categories with Visual Merchandiser from On Tap.
Our short tutorial videos give you a walk-through of all the key functionality and shows you the speed at which categories can be edited.
You can find full documentation for Visual Merchandiser on our wiki.
For example, you can create a category that includes all discounted clothing automatically; or categories for brands where adding a product to the catalogue causes it to automatically appear in the corresponding brand category. The possibilities are endless!
We’ve also built a developer interface so that the extension can be extended to provide custom sort logic within Visual Merchandiser or Smart Categories.
Just like default Magento functionality, when setting product positions in Visual Merchandiser, you need to have the ‘Sort by Position’ option available on your categories. If you are unsure any this, please ask us.
The version available from Magento is only supported for version 1.14.1 of Enterprise Edition. If you wish to use it on an earlier version of Enterprise, please contact us for assistance.
It is licensed per server, so if you have multiple Magento instances, then you’ll need to purchase multiple licenses.
Bug fixes are included within the lifetime of your use of the product regardless of whether you have technical support/product updates. As long as we can replicate the bug in our extension on a clean version of Magento (using a version that is supported by your version of the extension), then we’ll fix it free of charge.
